The New York Times:
A band of Texas cowboys left for Buenos Ayres on November 6 (1905).
There is not a man in Jowell's band who is not a celebrity.
The cowmen, wearing sombreros with crowns a foot high and brims
three feet across attracted much attention on Broadway.
 
Several West Texas cowboys, including the famous Negro bull-dogger Will Pickett met Butch, Sundance and Etta in Argentina. True story. The cattle-dealing venture does not work out and the cowboys leave in a hurry on the first ship out. The SS Pennsylvania is carrying explosives heading for San Francisco. The cowboys save the ship!
Ed Fisher, "adopted" son of Mr. and Mrs. Ira Driver wrote the story:
